The same day the US navy hit Assad Shayrat base in Homs, Assad jets targeted residential areas of Damascus’s Douma, killing and injuring innocent civilians.

The Syrian baby girl Amira - which means queen in Arabic - was killed on April 7 after Assad-Russian jets bombed her city of Douma in Damascus countryside.

The 18 months-old queen had her life taken away with one Assad strike.

The young father’s pain tells the story of every Syrian who had to say goodbye to his loved ones too quickly, too soon.
